"Hearing the stories and seeing the dollars that were being generated in the communities spoke volumes to me."

After I heard about Start:ME and saw the excitement around the program, I knew I had to see what it was all about. Hearing the stories and seeing the dollars that were being generated in the communities spoke volumes to me. I thought if I provide any help here, sign me up!

How has your finance background and time at Northern Trust prepared you to be a mentor?

"Being able to ask the right questions and pull the right information is what has helped prepare me as a mentor."

My work in finance and banking is about taking people's numbers and pulling out their story. Whether I am reviewing formally prepared financials or excel spreadsheets, being able to ask the right questions and pull the right information is what has helped prepare me as a mentor.

Any advice to people considering becoming a Start:ME mentor?
